On October 8, 27-year old former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader and teacher Sarah Jones pleaded guilty to having sex with one of her students, a 17-year old boy. However, the boy’s family and Jones have known each other for a long time and despite the 9-year age difference, she had been friends with now-18 Cody York since he was a child. So it wasn’t much of a surprise when the York family refused to cooperate with prosecutors and Jones was ultimately sentenced to five years of diversion and she avoided that whole “sex offender” tag.

What was a bit of a surprise was that Jones and York left the courthouse holding hands, as they’d later reveal to the media that they are still dating and plan to move on with their lives. As someone who vividly and fondly remembers being 18, what is this bro thinking? Turns out he’s thinking about love.

“We made a poor choice together,” Jones told “Dateline”. “But that doesn’t mean that we can’t find happiness at the end of the day. And we will.

“He’s wonderful, and I absolutely adore everything because even if he has flaws, I adore them.” (Via

So now they can just fade away into oblivion and lead their fabulous little lives away from our scorn, right? Haha, no. Jones and York are getting a f*cking reality TV show.

“She’s totally cashing in on her crime, and I’m pretty sure that if it was a 27-year-old man that had pleaded guilty to having sex with his 17-year-old female student he wouldn’t have been given a TV show!” an insider told Radar Online.

495 Productions, creators of the MTV hit “Jersey Shore,” approached Jones with a proposal to parlay her newfound notoriety into television ratings.

“This whole scandal has turned into one big payday for Sarah,” the source said. “She was boasting that she ‘made bank’ for her ‘Dateline (NBC)’ interview last week and now she is going to be paid for appearing in her own reality TV show. It’s sick.” (Via NY Daily News)

In case you’re wondering who the brains are behind 495 Productions and the responsible party for this trash and other shows like Jersey Shore, it’s this woman, SallyAnn Salsano:

So call her in case you ever get away with a sex crime and want to brag about it.
